“I was 21 when we started this crazy journey but now at 28, after 7 years and 100 episodes, I decided it was time for me to move forward as an actor and as a person. As the nature of our jobs, I needed to look for new challenges, new opportunities and make a new chapter. For myself. I have been very fortunate to be a part of something so wonderful for so long, but I hope you will understand and respect my choice for further expansion and growth. I would not have been here without all of you, and I am so grateful.”

To my dear family on @feartwd, tonight marks the end of the extraordinary and extraordinary journey of playing Alicia Clark.
from where we start…
I will never be able to fully express what kind of journey I’ve had working on fairwd for so long. You have given me so much.
It has been the most exceptional training ground as an actor where I have had the opportunity to grow and learn. I have had the privilege of working with so many inspiring and talented people. It provided new opportunities, such as directing and connected me with such amazing fans who supported me along the way.
It was exciting, challenging, fun, challenging and inspiring.

I’ve had a lot of conversations over the years with our show partners goldbergian and andrewchambliss and I think we’ve found an appropriate way to end Alicia’s story. It’s beautiful, hopeful, and elusive.
To the crew and cast from Los Angeles to Vancouver, Mexico and Texas, I am grateful for all you taught me. I love you all so much and am so lucky to have you by my side. To the cast from now on, I’m very excited about what you’re going to create next! And to my journey or death who have been with me every step of the way (you know who you are) I will be forever grateful to you.
It’s bittersweet, but the time has come.
Thank you for everything.
My love to you all.
